Las Vegas Estate Planning Attorney

Professional Will & Trust Drafting in Nevada

If you do not have a plan in place for your estate before your passing, the State of Nevada will implement one on your behalf—and your loved ones may not like it very much. Whether your estate is large or small, whether you have ten children or none, those you leave behind deserve to be spared the emotional and financial burden of probate proceedings.

As both a stand-alone specialty and as a natural complement to our family law practice, SmartLaw Las Vegas offers comprehensive estate planning services to ensure that your estate is “probate-proof,” and your legacy is secure. We also offer review and, where necessary, amendment or restatement of your estate planning documents; this is especially important if your documents were prepared in another state, or if your situation or wishes have changed since you signed your original documents. Whatever it is you need, our Las Vegas estate planning lawyer Sean D. Lyttle is here to help.

What Makes a Will Legal in Nevada?

There are several requirements for a will to become legal in the state of Nevada:

  • The testator must be at least 18 years of age
  • The testator must be of sound mind
  • The testator must sign the will, or have it signed by someone who the testator has given permission

In Nevada, the will must be signed by at least two witnesses who are not eligible to receive beneficiaries. They also must sign in front of the testator. The will must be in writing,—nothing oral will be deemed valid.

What Happens if You Die Without a Will in Nevada?

People who pass away and do not create a will must have their assets distributed according to the state's intestate succession laws. Someone will be court appointed by the state of Nevada to serve as a personal representative for the estate. Any outstanding taxes or debts will have to be paid off before anything else is dispersed.

The first step of the process is probate. Any property or valuable items will be added up and calculated. Our estate planning lawyer can help guide you through each step and help you achieve peace of mind in this regard.
